BREAKING NEWS: CBS Cancels Production On Sheen's 'Two And A Half Men' (how to destroy a hit show)
yahoo ^ | feb 24, 2011 | yahoo tv

Posted on 02/24/2011 7:59:52 PM PST by max americana

Just hours after Charlie Sheen went on a radio rampage, blasting his bosses at the television show, CBS issued a statement on behalf of the network and "...Men's" production company, announcing they were pulling the show from production of new episodes.

"Based on the totality of Charlie Sheen's statements, conduct and condition, CBS and Warner Bros. Television have decided to discontinue production of 'Two and a Half Men' for the remainder of the season," CBS said in a statement late Thursday night.

SNIP

"I was told if I went on the attack, they would cancel the show and all that and so I'm just sort of seeing if they're telling the truth or not," Charlie claimed to host Alex Jones in an interview for his radio show, "The Alex Jones Show," on Thursday, referring to his CBS bosses.

"Are they happy with the $5 billion they already made off me or do they think they can turn it into $10 [billion] in a couple more seasons?" Charlie continued. "I'm just saying, you know [the show] is a runaway freakin' juggernaut."

Charlie made it abundantly clear he doesn't believe the show can survive without him, telling Alex, "Watch your ratings, dudes. Watch your stupid ratings.

"Do what you've gotta do -- I'll go make movies with superstars and not work with idiots," he threatened.

The 45-year-old also blasted show creator Chuck Lorre, calling him a "turd" while claiming that he embarrassed Chuck "in front of his children and the world by healing at a pace that his un-evolved mind cannot process."

>> claiming that he embarrassed Chuck “in front of his children and the world by healing at a pace that his un-evolved mind cannot process.”

When a man is on cocaine he rules the world, and no one can convince him otherwise.

Pretty sad.

The producer waited to pull the plug ONLY when he was personally insulted but NOT when Sheen was on the binge. Both are morons.

It’s too bad there can’t be a show with just an interviewer and Sheen spouting this type of stuff.

I heard that Charlie Sheen just signed a 1-year contract with the Boston Bruins. Can anybody verify? It would really be something to see this guy skating up and down the ice at the Boston Garden.

No way. He’s 45, which is over the hill and he’s older than Chris Chelios. Must be a stunt.

The guy’s a jerk - he’s been a jerk for years and that didn’t bother CBS before.

A couple of weeks ago, I saw a clip from his most recent show or one of the most recent and was appalled at his appearance. You cannot pour poison into your body in copious amounts for years and not have it finally show on your face.

He looked so bad my first thought was AIDS, maybe cancer. TV is a visual medium - no way CBS can put him on the air looking like that.

That probably was a CLM (Career-Limiting Move); there really is truth in “you’ll never work in this business again” - all of these shows and movies have to be insured, completion bonds, etc...who’s going to write those with him in a movie? This will be Lohan’s undoing also. I suspect that she will be untouchable until she’s at least in her 40’s, assuming that she’s still breathing by then.

“for the remainder of the season”

He’ll be back next season. Money means more to these businessmen than hurt feelings. besides, they probably have a contract with sheen that would cost them more to break than they care to spend.

I suspect Mr. Sheen is not going to be with us much longer if he doesn’t wake up and smell the decaf soon. Not a fan of his, but I hate to see anyone destroy themselves like this.

Even though Sheen went all Jason Bourne......Maybe THIS is why Lorre shut it down..........

radaronline.com exclusive -

"The Hollywood superstar revealed he was in serious negotiations to star in his own half-hour show, titled Sheen’s Corner -- a deal that would reputedly land him a whopping $5 million an episode.

“I’m close to securing a deal with HBO for a 10 show guarantee,” Sheen told RadarOnline.com’s Dylan Howard, exclusively.

“It will be epic, all types of guests and we will focus on the truth and the absurd!”

HBO could not be contacted for comment."

I thought the show was disgusting and only really watched it once.

There was an episode set during Christmas where the main theme was Sheen wanting to bed some girl - which he did - until his mother interrupted them and as I recall informed the couple that they might be related due to some past dalliances by the mother.

It was a looong loong way from It’s a Wonderful Life and a long way from National Lampoons “A Christmas Vacation” - my personal favorite.

Wow, that must be some morality clause!

Lets see...A show about an immoral man who’s real life is a parody of the character he plays...and was so BEFORE the show aired. All this time he managed to stay within tolerances of that clause until the day he publicly insults his boss.

Very interesting. even more interesting will be your response, Revolting cat. You know, one might say that charlie sheen is one badass “revolting cat”. LOL

You can bet that pulling the plug on this monster hit TV series was the last thing CBS wanted to do. Sheen's spiraling downward behavior gave them no choice.

Whatever the cause, the man has a severe mental condition. I feel for his family....they suffer deeply, too.

I hope this real-life drama has a propitious ending....but I really don't think it will.

All I can say is "Gunsmoke" lost "Chester", and it survived about 15 years after that with "Festus".

Crack isn't good for your teeth as Charlie demonstrates.

Kacey Jordan who says she drank and did drugs with Sheen before he was hospitalized and then checked into rehab tells E News she feared for the actor s life. Charlie Sheen has lost many of his teeth replaced them with gold implants and wears an apparatus in public so that no one will notice.

And I used to think I was indestructible, until I started getting into my forties and fifties. Charlie Sheen isn't a young man anymore, and those previous twenty years are not qualitatively comparable to the next set of twenty years.

Twenty five years ago I did road and sound work for a ten piece band. I used to throw amplifiers over my shoulders and carry them in and out of the clubs. At 54, there is no way I could do that now.

The problem with Charlie Sheen is, he still thinks he's indestructible. His mind may want to party like he's 25 or 30, but he's about to find out that his body doesn't.

charly’s angels survived without farah. Three’s company survived without suzanne.

This is a little bit different though. NO one can do sheen’s part with as much credibility as he can.

I hear ya. I’m in my forties and started feeling it bad a few years ago. I don’t run anymore. NOt for anything. Hurts the hips too much. I can’t drink in excess either, I’ll suffer for a week. Actually I can barely even drink in moderation. Gotta watch the spicy foods and greasy foods and anything too rich. Muscles will lock up on me now and then for seemingly no reason at all. Tendonitis almost constantly. Can’t go and go indefinitely on not enough sleep anymore either. I’d be in really bad shape by now if I hadn’t shifted to a more cautious lifestyle.

But on a positive note, I don’t get sick much. I used to get a cold, or the flu, or a sinus infection repeatedly. Now I only get sick about once every 18months or less. And it’s really minor when I do.

Some people don’t get those ailments until much later in life though. I suspect charlie sheen is one of them or he would’ve tapered off years ago.

I saw this story linked to on Drudge from some Hollywood rag...the comments were typical liberal nonsense from typical liberal scum.

Read them, they are hilarious. These people are truly insane.

And guess what folks, Two-and-a-Half Men IS NOT FUNNY! It’s the same old crap formula of insult comedy filled with one-liner zings around sex jokes.

Ha Ha Ha. Geez, that’s original. Compared to well written shows like Seinfeld or Fraiser it’s garbage that monkeys could perform.
